Wednesday, 23 July 2008 00:00

Delivered Nearly 10,000 Babies in County

Caring, honest, incredible, compassionate, wonderful, hardworking and loved, when asked to describe Dr. E. R. Apple in one word this is what the community had to say.

Dr. Eddie R. Apple passed away at his residence on Monday, July 14, at the age of 82.

Apple was a well known physician, not just in our county, but throughout southern Indiana. Apple delivered over 9,000 babies throughout his career at Washington County Memorial Hospital and more in neighboring hospitals.

One thing that stood out about Apple as a doctor, was he really knew his patients. You were not just a person, you were his friend and he took care of you.

A few years back Dr. Apple told of his first “surgery” as a youngster. He performed surgery on a chicken who had a lump in its throat. He made up his mind of becoming a physician early in life.

?County Council suspends EDIT Fund spending until it gets answers PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 16 July 2008 00:00
???  ?    The Washington County Council met in regular session on Monday, July 7 with all members present.  The minutes of previous meetings were approved unanimously.
    The ongoing debate between the County Council and the Washington County Board of Commissioners continued and was marked by a heated and lively exchange between Commissioner Lana Sullivan and Council Members Mark Manship and Mignon Mashall.  
    This issue began back in May when Manship asked Sullivan to explain why the Auditor’s Office did not notify the Council that the county’s budget had been cut by the State of Indiana in 2006; Sullivan was Washington County Auditor at the time in question. 
    In addition, Manship asked for an explanation of what appeared to be overspending for the year 2006 of over $850,000.  Sullivan said that she would provide an explanation by the June 2 Council meeting.  But assured Manship that there was not a problem.
    At the June 2 Council meeting, Manship again asked for an explanation but Sullivan did not provide one siting a very busy work schedule.  She told the Council she would have the answers by the July 7 meeting.
    When Manship asked for the explanation again at last week’s meeting, Sullivan said that she would be willing to meet with Manship privately to explain the report from the state to which Manship replied, “I am not comfortable meeting in private to discuss public money.  This issue needs to be discussed in a public meeting.”
    At that point, Sullivan said she was not willing to discuss the issue in a public meeting and refused to comment on it any further.  According to Sullivan the explanation is too complex to be laid out in a public meeting.
